Frequently, people mistake jobs for purpose and the purpose for living to the next day is for mere survival, not in service to others. What is your purpose? Why are you here on this planet and not another?
Years ago, when my little sister was in college she drove long miles from somewhere in Virginia home in Southern Maryland to tell the family a recent news story. Apparently, a baby was born. His first words at birth, "Jesus is coming back!" were his last words. He died after uttering them to the astonished nurse and doctor crew delivering the baby.
That little incident went into a vault never to be heard again but many remember it because the baby lived his purpose and left us. How his life purpose rippled is in the retelling of his story. How does your life ripple? ~ Gregory E. Woods, Keeper of Stories 6.26.16
